Can Wallpaper Slideshows Display In Sequence?


Greetings!

I found that XFCE Mint Maya's desktop slideshow (briefly), DesktopNova, and Cortina all only display images randomly instead of in sequence (either alphabetically or size or date). Is there a trick to whip such images into order? DesktopNova and Cortina home forums are ghosttowns that don't respond to such questions.

Thanks!

If XFCE is setup like Gnome 2x was (or MATE is) then yes there is a way to do it. I wrote a tutorial a few years ago on how to do it in Gnome 2, you can try it and see if it works but I make no promises.

Here's another tutorial for a screen saver in Gnome 2 (MATE) that may also work.
